50 Questions for Jesus

7 Dec

How did it feel, being an endless perfect being, squeezing yourself into a mortal, imperfect body?
How did it feel to be limited for the first time in all eternity?
Was it awkward to be born?
Did you ever question where you came from?
Did you ever regret coming to earth?
Did you get made fun of as a kid?
Did they call you a bastard or an animal, because of where you were born?
Did you fit in with the others?
Could people tell you were different?
Did you always know you were God, did you think like Him?
You said you only did what the Father told you, but  did you still have your own ideas, and you just quieted them?

I know you were God
but you were so so human,
You said you were tempted in every way, so….

Did you ever think about jumping off the edge?
Did you ever want to be with that girl?
Did you long for earthly human love?
Was the love of your father really enough?
Did you ever want to hit that man instead of turn the other cheek?
Did you ever want to drink all that wine you turned to water and just forget about it?
Did you ever fear what your parents thought of you?
Was it hard leaving your home town?
Did you get annoyed at your disciples?
Where you tempted to get up in the middle of the night and leave?
Didn’t you want to get married and have a family?
Did you get sick of what people expected of you?
Did you ever just want to live a “normal” life?
Did you ever think people didn’t deserve what you were giving them?

Do you really understand my emotions, my struggles?
Can you really understand my humanity?
How can I believe that, when I only see your deity?

You said, let this cup pass from me, did that mean you didn’t want to die?
I mean, who would, but isn’t that why you came?
Did it hurt you when one of your own betrayed you, even though you saw it coming?
Did you want to answer when you were questioned?
Did you think about turning back?
Was it hard to forgive?
Was the emotional pain really worse then the spiritual pain?
What did the sin of the world feel like?
Did you have me in mind?
Did you really know everything that was happening, or were you just being obedient?

I know you died for me, as a perfect human, and as God,
That you crucified sin, and the law, and broke all odds,
But really, why?

Love…. Was that your motive?
Was there any other?
Did you know most of the world would still treat you like the high priests and the Roman soldiers had?
Was it still worth it?
Is love from us humans worth the risk?
Do you ever regret creating us in the first place?
Why do you trust us so much?
Why did you give us your spirit, so much power, when you knew we still wouldn’t get it?
Why is your body still so broken?
Are we just waiting for someday when you return, or is it about right here and right now, because you are with us?

How far away is home?

    simply brilliant questions.
    were you annoyed at your disciples,
    did you want to get up in the middle of the night and leave,
    why’d you give your spirit when you knew we wouldn’t get it,
    why do you trust us.
